WASHINGTON, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Today Pascal Metrics Inc. publicly announces its offering of patient safety culture and risk management services for hospitals and healthcare systems. Serving clients since 2007, Pascal Metrics rapidly has become a worldwide leader for clients seeking to comply with Joint Commission and other regulatory requirements, to reduce costs, and - by making healthcare more reliable - to make patients safer from medical failure and errors.

Pascal Metrics delivers the only solution that commercially supports both of the major scientifically-validated patient safety culture surveys: the Safety Attitudes Questionnaire (SAQ) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture. More broadly, Pascal Metrics offers a field-leading range of metrics and analytics, including a pioneering observation service that tracks behavioral markers.

in high-risk environments. Relying on Pascal Metrics' software-as-a-service
(SaaS) solution, senior and clinical leaders implement data-driven
interventions and track cultural impro
